RSO attended the TheatreWorks Silicone Valley Writer’s Retreat from April 7-14th for his new show, We Foxes. This is the third time that We Foxes has received a retreat, previously being featured at CAP 21 and the Weston Playhouse.
We Foxes is a Southern Gothic Musical Thriller written by RSO set in Missouri, 1945. It tells about Willa, a tough and unmannered orphan girl adopted by the Sheriff’s Wife, a calculating socialite, and the bloody domestic war that ensues between them when the girl uncovers the terrible secrets lurking beneath the floorboards. It is a story of intense human struggle, deliverance, and the great salvation found only through oneself.
